Glee has the singing. Modern Family has the gay parenting. Community has the paint balling. The Big Bang Theory has the bazingaing. But none of those show, not a one, has what 30 Rock has. Sure, they’re all funny – hilarious in some cases. But they lack that special something – and by something special I mean Tina freaking Fey.
The three-time Emmy winning comedy 30 Rock returns to TV tonight for its fifth season premiere. Which means Tina Fey is back on my TV which means all is right with the world. War. Famine. Pestilence. Terrible, but Tina is on my TV. DADT not repealed. Prop. 8 overturn stalled. Katy Perry still a git? Wrong, but for 30 minutes I’ve got Tina to make it all better.
Tina is magic. Tina is magnificent. Tina is a drunk mom and she doesn’t care who knows it. Too much? Never enough. Witness her hilarious appearance earlier this week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Funny, right? Even funnier if you know exactly what shenanigans Tina was talking about. After 30 Rock failed to take home any Emmy gold this year, Tina and friends made like Mad Women and partied it up with Don Draper himself. If you’ve ever wondered what a Tina Fey-Jon Hamm-Amy Poehler dance floor sandwich looks like, today is your lucky day.
And, better yet, here is the paparazzi video Tina was talking about as well. If you didn’t love her before, you have to love her for her drunken giggle and crazy hair. If this is what it looks like when New York gets drunk, the next round is on me – forever.
Watch Tina talk about the return of 30 Rock (which airs at 8:30 p.m. on NBC, which you will watch – right, right?). Matt Damon will return in his doorman to the sky uniform.
Funcooker, here I come.
